New Firmware (N7105XXDMB3) Released for Samsung Galaxy Note II (LTE) – GT-N7105

If you are not sure what is the version of firmware that you are currently running, open the dial pad and ‘*#1234#’. A screen should pop-up and show you the AP, CP and CSC model. If you AP does not read N7105XXDMB3, then you are due for an upgrade.

Based on some testings perform by forumers in xda-developers, this version has fixed the battery drain issue found in N7105XXDLL7. And of course, it fixes some other minor bugs as well. For those who do not root your Note 2, you are good to go with Over-the-Air (OTA) update. Otherwise, you may download the firmwares below depending on your providers.

Steps on installation can be found on my previous post.

Update your Samsung Galaxy Note II (LTE) – GT-N7105 to Android Jelly Bean 4.1.2!

Android Jelly Bean 4.1.2 for Samsung Galaxy Note II (LTE) is out! The firmwares are available for all 3 local telcos, namely M1,  SingTel and StarHub.

You may either download the update via Over-the-Air (OTA) transmission or perform a manual update. Since my phone is a rooted set, I am unable to grab the update through OTA. The manual updating process is very simple. Basically, it is almost identical as the process to root your phone except that the file used is different.

Review: Samsung Galaxy Note II (LTE) – GT-N7105

Finally, I managed to get my hands onto the new Samsung Galaxy Note II (LTE) after quite a wait for the re-stocking to take place where it went out-of-stock islandwide. Even though the demands during the launch was less crazier compared to Apple iPhone5, supply was pretty low and resulted in many failing to get one. The phone is available in white and titantium color casing, and I chose the white color version. My first impression of the Note II upon powering it on was that the usage was smooth and snappy. This is likely due to the quad-core CPU that is running this device. Installing apps was a breeze, and even loading GPS application such as Sygics was fast. The super AMOLED screen was indeed crisp and sharp, and made viewing of pictures and videos a fantastic experience.
